The massacre perpetrated by the Syrian regime in Tal Rif’at in Aleppo has lead to the death of more than 12 civilians, with tens injured. According to eye-witnesses, war planes of the Syrian regime shelled the village of Tal Rif’at, North of the city of Aleppo, during noon time, killing over 12 civilians till this moment, among them a whole family made up of six individuals, and injuring over 30 people.
According to eye witnesses, the number of victims will most probably increase due to the victims still being pulled out from underneath the rubble of the buildings.
